BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore's top prosecutor announced criminal charges Friday against all six officers suspended after a man suffered a fatal spinal injury in police custody.
The announcement came after nearly two weeks of growing anger over Freddie Gray's death, and only hours after she received the results of a police investigation.
State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced the stiffest charge -- second-degree depraved heart murder -- against the driver of the police van. Other officers faced charges of involuntary manslaughter, assault and illegal arrest.
Mosby said the switchblade officers accused Gray of illegally carrying clipped inside his pants pocket was in fact a legal knife, and no justification for his arrest.
"No one is above the law," Mosby said at a news conference.
